Rules and guidelines

  • You may do the isolation walk and isolation walk alternative, but only one submission per person to be eligible for the contest. Multiple entries will be disqualified
  • Remember to practice physical distancing. Take a walk around the neighborhood if your local park is too busy. See someone you know and want to chat? Don’t forget to stand two meters apart!
  • Respect closures in your local area. Check your local government's website for current information: outdoor recreational amenities, both public and private, including playgrounds, sports fields and courts, dog parks, picnic areas are closed. Don’t remove or cross barricades or tape
  • Avoid entering private property. If one of the items on the list is on someone’s property, take a photo from the sidewalk
  • Normally we would encourage garbage pick-up during Earth Week, however, during this year’s event, we ask you avoid doing so
